Memorial service for stabbed Catholic teacher

Members of the public have been invited to join Mrs Maguire's family in a celebration of her life and contribution to education.

The 61-year-old RE and Spanish teacher was stabbed in the neck in her classroom at Corpus Christi Catholic college, Leeds, on 28th April.

A 15-year-old boy has been charged with Mrs Maguire's murder and will go on trial in November.

The memorial service is being held at Leeds Town Hall and an overflow area has been arranged because numbers are expected to be so high.

Rev Msgr John Wilson from the Diocese of Leeds will lead the service, which will feature music, videos and stories from Mrs Maguire's life.

A minute's silence will be observed at 12.30pm.

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
